BBW Chapter 99 : Leaving In Anger


きつね: This is the second-longest chapter I ever translated for Black Belly Wife. 💀



Murong Yunshu was angry.

Although she did not say a word when she learned that he had used up 80% of his internal energy to heal Li Xiaoru's wounds, she only glanced at his frail body before leaving the once sad but now happy crowd behind as she walked away expressionless. However, Chu Changge knew that she was angry. She was furious at him.

"Oh, son, you are really something. Why did you work so hard for other women!" Fairy Yaoyue chided.

Chu Changge, however, did not seem to hear her words. He gazed at Murong Yunshu's back for a long time until he could no longer see it, then said to Zhao Da, "She will wake up in an hour." With that he strode out of Li Xiaoru's boudoir.

Fairy Yaoyue blinked and ran out after him. It was a rare occasion when her son and daughter-in-law conflicted. So she, as a mother-in-law, couldn't just watch it with folded arms. Even if she wasn’t the one who poured the oil into the fire, she should at least be there to fan the flames.

As soon as she stepped outside, Fairy Yaoyue bumped into North Guardian. He was in a hurry and almost collided with her.

North Guardian took a few steps back with a face full of fear, "Hello Ma, Madam."

"Oh, Lil North, didn't I tell you yesterday? Don't make it look like I'm going to ravish you." Fairy Yaoyue smiled and circled North Guardian a few times. She noticed that he always looked on edge. She asked, "Am I that scary?"

North Guardian tried desperately to pull back the head that wanted to nod, squeezed out a smile that looked much worse than his crying face and shook his head stiffly as it let out a faint sound of creaking bones.

Fairy Yaoyue’s face burst into a satisfied smile when she saw him shaking his head and continued to ask with a smile, "Then why do you look so scared to death?"

"This subordinate is not afraid but simply wants to die." North Guardian explained thus.

Fairy Yaoyue glared unhappily at him and questioned, "So, you want to die as soon as you see me?!"

"Er......" So to speak.

"Humph! You don't think they touched you enough yesterday, do you?

"No, no!" North Guardian immediately shook his head like a pellet drum, with his face as white as paper. Thinking about last night's experience, he hated it so much that he wished he could die. She, she, she......she had actually sent him to a brothel last night! There was nothing scary about the brothel. It was just that he had never been into one before. As a normal man, he would occasionally want to let off some steam, but to be weak after being drugged up and then being forced to go into a brothel, that was just too scary! Especially when there were two delicate as a flower, refined as a precious jade female prostitutes, wearing only a gauze groping his body. It gave him a real taste of what it was like not to be able to satisfy his desire!

T/N: I don't know that they're different sizes of pellet drums and a technique for playing them.

Hadn't he just 'accidentally' appeared outside the courtyard while her son and daughter-in-law were doing their business inside? It wasn't like he purposely listened to them from the corner of the wall!

The more North Guardian thought about it, the more he felt wronged, but he dared not speak out in anger. So he chose the thirty-six stratagems, which was to run away. "This subordinate still has something to do. So this subordinate will leave first." After saying that, he ran away as if he was flying.

Seeing this, Fairy Yaoyue burst out laughing. She walked towards the guest courtyard while laughing non-stop. It was indispensable to use other people's pain to find a little amusement in this dull day.

When Chu Changge chased Murong Yunshu to the guest courtyard of Feiyang Mountain Villa, there was no one in sight. He frowned and called out in a low voice, "Old East."

With a swoosh, East Guardian emerged from nowhere and stood beside Chu Changge, "Leader."

"Where did she go?" Chu Changge asked.

East Guardian didn't need to think who this 'she' was referring to, so he replied, "I heard Madam say she was going to spend her fortune, so I think she went down the mountain to disperse her wealth."

Before the words were out of his mouth, Chu Changge was nowhere to be found.

East Guardian hastily called out, "Leader, your internal strength has not yet recovered, so it is not advisable to leave Feiyang Mountain Villa!"

It was someone else who heard these words rather than Chu Changge. "Old East, who are you talking to?" Fairy Yaoyue asked leisurely.

As soon as East Guardian saw that the visitor was Fairy Yaoyue, he immediately said, "Leader has gone down the mountain. This subordinate must follow him as his protection." After he spoke these words, a gust of wind rose, and his figure disappeared.

Fairy Yaoyue blinked in surprise. Back then, she was also the first beauty in jianghu. How could these young people see her as if they saw a ghost?

As East Guardian chased Chu Changge down the mountain, he also sent a signal to South, North and West.

Ever since they found out yesterday that Jin Yanzi had been pretending to be the old maid who was acting strangely, the four of them had split up their work. He was responsible for staying in the guest courtyard to prevent anyone from coming there to make a move. Lil South was monitoring Fang Hongfei and the other's movements. Lil West was responsible for monitoring Jin Yanzi's every movement inside the residence. At the same time, Lil North was responsible for passing on the news.

Since Leader had kept Miss Li's injury treatment a secret from Madam, not to mention it had brought damage to his internal strength, it had also caused a fire to break out in his backyard, and now he was risking his life to chase Madam down the mountain. They, the Four Great Guardians, could care less about guarding against Fang Hongfei's schemes and tricks. To them right now, Leader's safety was the most important.

On the other hand, Fairy Yaoyue looked in the direction of the main gate. For the first time, her face showed the solemnity of an elder while sighing, "Knowing that you have as many enemies as the hair on an ox, you still dare to venture down the mountain. You truly don’t care for your life, do you? Dajie, you see, Ah Chang is very wise, but after he met Murong Yunshu, he became so foolish that he put his life on the line, just like you. Hopefully, he will have better luck than you."

With another long sigh, Fairy Yaoyue also trailed behind East Guardian down the mountain. This time, she must prevent a tragedy from happening.

Fairy Yaoyue, who was deeply concerned about the safety of Chu Changge, didn't notice that there were other people present while she was mumbling to herself.

"Fairy Yaoyue has an older sister? How come she sounded as if Chu Changge is not her own......"

Hua Ziqing scratched the back of his head. In comparison, his face was full of puzzlement.

Chu Changge rode down the mountain and was stopped before he could find Murong Yunshu.

"I don't want to kill anyone today." Chu Changge looked coldly at the young man who stood in front of his horse.

The young man's face burned with hateful rage as he said indignantly, "Chu Changge, you killed my father. I will make you pay with your blood today!"

"Is that so?" A cold light flashed in Chu Changge's black eyes. His thin lips slightly parted as he faintly said, "In that case, then I will have to kill you as well."

The young man raised his sword and said, "Humph! Don't think I don't know. Because you have healed Miss Li's wounds, you have greatly injured your vitality, and now you only have twenty per cent left of your internal strength!"

Chu Changge responded in a cold voice, "Even if I have only ten per cent left, it is more than enough to kill you."

"You're still talking big when facing your imminent......" Before he could utter the words ‘death’, the young man suddenly opened his eyes wide. His eyeballs almost seemed to pop out as his throat made a squeaking sound.

Chu Changge was still expressionless, but the corners of his mouth looked a little pale. This paleness was not because he was sick but rather because he was starting to feel cold. As his internal energy drained away, his thin body gradually became unable to withstand the coldness from the howling wind.

The young man's throat was still squeaking, with beads of sweat forming on his face. His face was already contorted as he tried desperately to say the word 'you', but he could not say it as he fell to the ground.

Chu Changge didn't even glance at him. He tugged up the reins as he was about to gallop away when he heard a voice from behind him――

"You killed him without asking his name. Aren't you afraid of killing innocent people by mistake?"

Chu Changge did not turn back, for he was not interested in who was behind him, as he indifferently said, "I, Chu Changge, have always killed only those who deserve to die. If I indeed killed his father, then if I do not kill him, he will kill me."

"What if you did not kill his father?"

"Then he is the damn man." Chu Changge answered with a cold face.

"You have too much aura of death around you."

"For a slayer, an aura of death is the symbol of a long life." After dropping these words, Chu Changge sped away. He didn't have time to waste on a passerby.

As the sound of horses' hooves faded away, a young man in his early twenties jumped down from a tree, looked at the flying dust, and repeatedly murmured the words Chu Changge left behind before he left.


*


The reason Chu Changge didn't hesitate to kill the young man who came to seek revenge was because of the phrases 'Don't think I don't know. Because you have healed Miss Li's wounds, you have greatly injured your vitality, and now you only have twenty per cent left of your internal strength'. He had ventured down the mountain and couldn't risk letting this news spread in the jianghu. But he didn't expect that the information had already spread like wildfire.

Only his people knew the matter regarding his treatment of Miss Li's injury. As for Fang Hongfei and the mole he sent into the Feiyang Mountain Villa, they had been under South, East, North and West surveillance. So others couldn’t learn of this matter. In the end, who had spread this news outside?

Facing the revenge-seeker who came out of nowhere, Chu Changge couldn't help but recall the ambush at King Liang's residence in the Province of Shu. There are thousands of poisons in the world, but Hua Yeli chose to use the Enchantment Fragrant from Snowy Region to deal with him, to which he happened to have no resistance. If Hua Yeli had not learned this weakness of his, he would never have dared to use poison on him. It was because everyone in the jianghu knew that he, Chu Changge, was invulnerable to all kinds of toxins. Using poisons would only bring about one’s own death.

Chu Changge had never figured out how Hua Yeli learned that the Enchantment Fragrant from the Snowy Region was able to put him down, and even more so how the waves of revenge seekers in front of him learned that he was currently heavily wounded.

But fortunately, Fang Hongfei did not come. Otherwise, there was only death for him in his current condition if he went against Fang Hongfei's Cosmic Absorbing Power Technique.

"Chu Changge, you have never thought that you would get your just desserts, right? Humph! Heaven has opened its eyes, and here I come to take care of you, you murderous devil!" Someone shouted in front of his horse.

Chu Changge sneered. With a slight movement from his right hand, he snapped his fingers, and after hearing a 'swoosh' sound, the screamer fell to the ground, staring at him with a pair of white eyes. He was dead with his eyes still open.

The crowd was horrified and couldn't believe their eyes. Chu Changge, who only had twenty per cent left of his internal force, could still kill people invisibly......

Chu Changge tugged on the reins. The horse under his seat seemed to understand its master's mind as it slowly trotted forward step by step.

When the horse took one step forward, all the men at the front took one step back.

Chu Changge coldly said, "I have already killed two people today, who wants to be the third, feel free to come forward. This Chu will certainly be of service!"

As soon as these words came out, the fear on everyone’s faces increased slightly, and their backward steps began to appear staggered and unstable.

At this moment, someone suddenly shouted, "Two fists cannot defeat four hands. He is now seriously injured and isolated. If we go together, we will be able to kill him!"

There was a moment of silence. Then there was a lot of noise.

"That's right. Let’s go together!"

"Let’s kill the great devil!"

"Eliminate evil for the martial arts circles!"

……

……

"A bunch of people who overestimate their abilities!" Chu Changge coldly snorted. He was about to strike, only to feel four swift winds whistling from both of his sides. The corners of his mouth immediately hooked up, and the arrogance in his eyes became even more significant.

"Leader!" With this neat shout, four black shadows landed on the ground.

As soon as the Four Great Guardians of the Mojiao Sect appeared, the sudden arousal of everyone's anger suddenly died out, and there was no other expression on their faces except fear.

Once North Guardian's cold spear came out, he said, "Leave these people to me."

West Guardian smilingly patted his shoulder and said, "Lil North, resolve the fight in the shortest time possible. We’ll wait for you at the teahouse for tea."

"You should have a drink after you kill someone." North Guardian said.

"Madam said that drinking hurts the body and only tea is allowed in the future."

North Guardian curiously asked, "When did Madam say that?"

West Guardian rolled his eyes and advised, "Lil North, focus on killing them. We'll go first."

"Madam certainly didn't say that――" North Guardian still wanted to argue with West Guardian, but he had already gone far away with the Leader, so he muttered, "In the future, whatever I say, I’ll also add the words 'Madam said'. Let’s see if you still dare to argue!"

They looked at each other, then shouted 'kill' and went towards North Guardian.

North Guardian immediately put away his dull expression as cold light suddenly appeared at the bottom of his eyes. This sensation of killing someone had been long overdue.[+]

Meanwhile, Murong Yunshu was picking and choosing in a jade store, with Lu-er following behind with a square tray, in which a white satin handkerchief was placed. Various antique jade items had been placed on it until there was no more space left. Murong Yunshu was still picking; regardless of whether she liked it or not, she would put it into the tray as long as it looked good.

"Miss, there’s no more space for you to buy more." What Lu-er truly wanted to say was that if her Miss bought more, her hands would snap because of the heavy tray.

"Switch the tray if there’s no more space available."

"......Miss, I think you should just buy the whole jade store," Lu-er suggested with a sour tone.

Hearing this suggestion, Murong Yunshu stopped and turned to stare at Lu-er for a few moments. Then she looked at the jade store owner, who was already smiling from ear to ear and said, "I'll take this store."

Not 'I want to buy this store', nor 'how much does this store sell for', but 'I want this store'. If it weren’t for her refined appearance, the jade store owner would have thought that she was a bandit who had come to rob him. "This jade store has been handed down from our ancestors. So I won't sell it for any amount of money." The shopkeeper answered with a smile, trying to act as friendly as possible. It was because he could see that the rich lady in front of him was not in a good mood.

"100 thousand." Murong Yunshu offered lightly.

"Huh?" The shopkeeper's jaw dropped, and his mouth opened so wide that he could put in a duck egg.

“200 thousand.”

He could put two duck eggs in his mouth.

“300 thousand.”

He could put three duck eggs in his mouth.

"Miss, don't treat the silvers like copper coins!" Lu-er hastily tried to stop her Miss, but unexpectedly her hand shook. The tray overturned, and the jade items fell to the ground with a crash, shattering all over the place.

The store instantly went silent, and all eyes fell upon Lu-er.

Lu-er was at a loss for words. She looked at Murong Yunshu, asking for help, "Mi, Miss......" So many jades. Even if she was sold, she could not afford to pay them all back!

Only to see Murong Yunshu give out a faint smile. As her right hand slowly released, with a crisp sound of 'pop', the gourd-shaped white jade broke into four pieces.

The crowd gasped and looked at Murong Yunshu with disbelief. Only the shopkeeper, staring at the 'corpse' of the gourd-shaped white jade on the ground with a pained face, as he wailed in his heart: this is my favourite!

Murong Yunshu said, "I don’t want the store anymore. Boss, calculate how much those jade pieces on the ground cost in total."

The shopkeeper suddenly shivered spiritually. Alright, since you don’t care for the jades, do not blame me for asking too much in return. The jades have been broken anyway. Thus I’m going to say how much I want!

The shopkeeper quickly fiddled with the abacus and then said a number.

Lu-er cried out, "This is just like the lion has opened its mouth wide! Those aren't even good jades; thus, they're not worth that much money!"

"Lu-er," said Murong Yunshu softly. "Pay for them."

"But he......"

"I come here just to spend money for me to have a great time. There’s no need to fuss with him about the price."

"Okay," replied Lu-er, as she pouted her lips, feeling unwilling. She pulled out the silver bills and counted them one by one in front of the shopkeeper.

Murong Yunshu turned her eyes and unexpectedly bumped into a pair of black eyes. She whispered, "Chu Changge――" and then stopped abruptly. It was because, the next second, she stared at the face of the person who came in. It was very similar to Chu Changge but with a completely different charm.

Lu-er also noticed the person outside the door and cried out in surprise, "Ki――"

Before the words 'King Sheng' could be uttered, it was cut off by Murong Yunshu, "Elder Brother Sheng, I trust you have been well since we last met."

King Sheng smiled warmly, "Miss Murong, we meet again."

Murong Yunshu also smiled at him, then walked out of the jade store and brushed past him.

Lu-er blinked at the unknown situation. She also followed Murong Yunshu trotted out the door. Before leaving, she also smilingly said 'goodbye' to King Sheng.

"Your Highness, she――"

King Sheng raised his hand to signal the attendant behind him to shut up. Then he also turned to leave the jade store and followed in the direction Murong Yunshu had gone to.


*


"Miss, why is King Sheng also here?" Lu-er asked as she walked.

Murong Yunshu paid no attention to her.

"Miss, don't walk so fast!"

Murong Yunshu still ignored her.

"Miss, you're walking too fast. I can't keep up." Lu-er trotted.

Murong Yunshu still ignored her and walked quickly towards Feiyang Mountain Villa.

"Miss, why are you in a hurry?"

"Talk again, and I'll sell you!"

"Uh......" Lu-er immediately silenced, not daring to say another word, as she quietly followed behind Murong Yunshu.

Although Murong Yunshu's face was composed, her heart was burning with anxiety.

When she woke up that morning, she found out that Chu Changge had not been with her. She realised that he had gone to heal Miss Li and immediately became jealous. Although she knew that he had treated Miss Li’s injury only to get the internal energy technique of the Burning Heart Palm, she couldn't help feeling angry that he had left her, who was still sleeping, and mad that he had ventured to heal others without her knowing.

Later, when she saw with her own eyes how weak Chu Changge was, Murong Yunshu's heart was tangled to the extreme. Her heart was angry, but she could not be mad at him since she knew very well that he did not do anything wrong. But if she didn't do anything to vent her frustration, she would eventually lose her head. That was why she had to go out into the street and spend money to ease her anger.

The moment Lu-er broke the jades, Murong Yun felt much better, and when she saw those dark eyes that were similar to Chu Changge, she suddenly remembered how dangerous her willfulness had brought to Chu Changge.

She should have thought that once she went down the mountain, Chu Changge would undoubtedly be so reckless to follow her. Then, in case she met an enemy......

Oh my God!

Murong Yunshu didn't dare to think about it anymore. She didn't know if it was because she was walking too fast or too anxious, but her forehead started to sweat.


*


At the same time, Chu Changge was leading South, East and West in the street to inquire about Murong Yunshu's whereabouts. Every time he saw a person, he would grab and ask, like a madman, ultimately losing his usual lofty and arrogant image.

"Have you ever seen a girl this tall and thin with a maid?" Chu Changge used his hand to show Murong Yunshu's body build.

"Nope."

"Have you ever seen a girl this tall and thin with a maid?"

"Nope."

"Excuse me..."

……

……


Seeing that it was getting late and the sun was setting in the west, East Guardian suggested, "Leader, perhaps Madam has already gone back. Why don't we return and take a look."

Chu Changge shook his head wearily. "She's so pretty and so special. She always attracts attention wherever she goes. We've asked so many people, and yet we haven't heard anything from her at all. I'm worried that...'' Chu Changge was afraid to continue his words.

The three of them all bowed their heads and remained silent. What the Leader said was right. Madam was a person with such a strong sense of existence……

The four of them were in a state of confusion and were at a loss how to proceed when they saw four girls with long legs and slender waists approaching them. Their bodies were full of wind and dust as they were chattering about something.

Chu Changge didn't pay attention at first. As they passed by, the words 'at first sight, she looked like a young lady who spent her family fortune' came into his ear. Suddenly, he caught hold of one of the women in green and asked, "Have you seen her?"

"Ah! Gongzi, you are hurting me!"

Chu Changge quickly let go of his hand. In fact, in normal times, he would never touch a woman like that. "Is that young lady you're talking about this tall and thin with a maid?" asked Chu Changge.

The woman in green looked at him strangely and said, "Yes! Didn't you just meet with her at the jade store?"

"The jade store?" Chu Changge frowned. He had never been to a jade store at all.[+]

"Yes," said the girl in green, as she retold the glorious story of Murong Yunshu's spending her money in the jade shop with feelings of envy and jealousy. "Is she your sweetheart? She treated you cold, and yet you are still with her?"

Cold? Chu Changge had no idea what she was talking about, nor did he want to know. "Which way did she go afterwards?" He inquired.

"That way." The woman in green reached out and pointed to a road to the northeast. She then asked curiously, "You were clearly following her there. Did you get lost halfway?"

Although Chu Changge could not understand the green-clothed woman's gibberish, he caught a message from her words――someone was trailing behind Murong Yunshu. This knowledge made his nerves tense, and he coldly instructed East Guardian, "Give her a few taels of silver." After speaking, he chased after Murong Yunshu in the northeast direction.

After throwing a few taels of broken silver to the woman in green, the three South, East and West also followed behind Chu Changge. However, their qinggong were not as good as Chu Changge's, so they kept lagging.

After chasing behind Chu Changge for a long time in silence, East Guardian finally couldn't help but say what he had been bottled up in his heart for a long time, "Our Madam is surprisingly good at spending her fortune!"

South Guardian nodded in agreement, "Yes! The Daye Dynasty can no longer find words to describe the extent of her spending." Phew, he finally got the words out of his mouth. It nearly killed him for holding them in!

"That's why it's said that in the heart of every rich girl, there lives a spendthrift. Our Madam is no exception. She makes money in abnormal situations and spends them when the situation becomes normal." West Guardian made his concluding remarks.

The two South and East nodded their heads with palpitations on their faces. Fortunately, the situations were abnormal most of the time. Otherwise, ten Murong Mansions would not be able to withstand her spending like this!

King Sheng and Chu Changge must really look like twins for others to be confused. 🤔
